The SEC has now issued rules implementing the Dodd-Frank whistleblower bounty provisions, ushering in a radically new compensation scheme that will affect compliance programs and investigations for all U.S. public companies. This webcast summarizes and discusses the implications of this new regime. Davis Polk partners participating in the webcast include former SEC Enforcement Director Linda Thomsen

Topics include:

  • Review of the new rules 
  • A new compliance and enforcement landscape: the anticipated flood of claims, the emergence of a whistleblower "industry," and how the SEC and CFTC will respond 
  • How the bounty program will reshape internal investigations and "voluntary" disclosures to enforcement authorities 
  • Implications for internal training and communications programs
